    Thank you! The Global Internet Usage based on time of day map is pretty interesting. I just saved that page to my favorites. :)

    Another map lover here. I love that I got paid to produce hand drawn maps at one point in my career. I can still navigate the back roads of Muskoka because of it. Surprised at our coffee consumption, and apparently we bribe more. :eek:

    When I clicked on the link, I expected to see something else, something I remembered seeing last year.

    So....here are 40 Maps That Explain the World and 40 More Maps That Explain the World for all you map lovers. There are a couple of maps that are repeated from the link in the OP, but most of them are different--and some of them are really interesting.

    Yum and Yum!! These are really fascinating. Look at the US the only country but one in the world that is not on Metric. WTF is wrong with us? Except please don't put us on Metric, I don't want to deal with it.
